Postcard Friendship Friday
I wonder if they were provided with a lot of these cards for this one was sent to my Grandmother, also called Winifred, from her sister. The family consisted of 11 girls and 1 boy.
It was posted on January 5, 1912 and it says "Dear Winnie, Just a card to tell you, to let me know, what day and what time you land at Arnside, then I will try to meet you, from your affectionate sister Lucy". Lucy is probably referring to the nearest railway station to Milnthorpe which would be Arnside. I don't know what my Grandmother was doing in North Rode, which is a village in Cheshire, about 100 miles away, perhaps working at The Creamery, she could turn her hand to anything, and would be about 20 years of age at this time.
I think Crome and Taylor were a large fertilizer company but they no longer exist, according to Company House, being dissolved in 1990.
but large crops were their selling point, another of their cards, but with the eulogy on the back and a man surveying his crop. I also found on the web one of their invoices from 1900
Happy Postal Friendship Friday, the meme is in full swing over at The Best Hearts are Crunchy.
